Final Fantasy VII not in Steam Summer Sale, gets 30% off elsewhere

This sponsored post is produced by Dealzon.

Earlier this month, Final Fantasy VII fans everywhere rejoiced when the title appeared on Steam. This is the same “re-release” that appeared on the official Square Enix store August of last year. Like the 2012 version, Final Fantasy VII on Steam comes with the “Cloud Saves” feature, which lets you access your save files between computers (3 max). The updated version also comes with the “Character Booster” feature, essentially letting you level up your characters without grinding for levels (full details here).

If the initial $11.99 price tag didn’t impress you, and the fact that Final Fantasy VII didn’t appear during the Steam Summer Sale disappointed you, have no fear. You can now get the Steam version of the game for 30% off at $8.40 through GMG! (Use code: GMG30-LY2G6-UKDYY)

Console gamers envious of the Steam Summer Sale should take a look at GameStop’s latest coupon code. Using GameStop’s coupon code SLICK15 takes 15% off all games priced $29.99+ and adds free “value” shipping. If there are instant savings involved, the coupon savings will stack, making even larger price breaks. This combo drops the PS3’s Ni no Kuni to $25.49 (normally $40). Also on sale is the recently released hit The Last of Us to $50.99 (elsewhere $60). This coupon code runs through July 21st.
